Renee has a wide variety of experience in providing counseling services to individuals in need including children, adolescents, adults, and families who were diagnosed with emotional, mental, and behavioral disorders. She has worked with all ages from 4 years to 56 years old. She enjoys the challenge of working with high-risk clients in the hopes of facilitating behavioral change. Renee’s counseling style is very warm and non-judgmental in her efforts to empathize with the individual client’s needs. She uses Cogivitive Behavioral Therapy, Solution-Focused and Reality Therapy to encourage clients to make more positive decisions in their daily lives. She also uses a combination of play and art techniques when it is beneficial to her client’s progress. Renee believes it is a very collaborative effort between therapist and client and most importantly is the warm and positive relationship that forms in the process.
Renee was born and raised in the New Orleans metro area but has traveled all around the world which has helped her to broaden her horizons and perspective on people and their specific cultures.
